On this announcement, Chair of the Scottish Co-operative Party Cathy Peattie, said:

‘The Scottish Labour Party is lucky to have such a high quality panel of candidates. It was good to see all of the candidates giving prominence to co-operative policies in their policy programme for Scotland’s future. The Scottish Co-operative Party looks forward to working with all of these candidates in the future as we strive to create a fairer, better, more co-operative Scotland.’’

While, Boyack responded to the news saying:

“I’m delighted to have been nominated by the Scottish Cooperative Party for Scottish Labour Leader. I have long been a supporter of the principle that co-operative ideals can make a significant difference to people’s lives and to create a fairer and more successful economy.”
